The June 2017 release of Road Warrior is a major step forward. More than just a pretty face, we have done a major rehab of the app, so that we a clear roadmap for the future. Over the next few months we will be bringing you several of the most useful and requested exciting new features.

Here are a few highlights of the current release:

Raspberry Theme:

The Road Warrior “Raspberry” accent color theme used is now used consistently throughout the app. However, this is far more than just cosmetic makeover. We took great care to accent and highlight the items which actually warrant your attention with a little pop of color. For example, the new “Add Stop” floating action button, selected items, and editing text field all have a splash of color when they need your focus and are muted when they don't.

Visualize More, Click Less

The popup views have been redesigned to show more information. You can now visualize more information with less clickity-clack. Here are just a couple of examples.

Route View displays a progress bar to visualize number of stops complete.

Do More with Data Lists

The data lists have dramatically improved power and functionality. This version enables you to sort, filter, and swipe consistently on each major data list (Routes, Stops, Favorites, Schedules, History). Here are a just a few of the new features added:

Multi-Select rows by clicking on the round icon. This will power several new bulk features which will be added in upcoming releases.

Simplify

We are alway striving to improve the UX by making things as simple and clear as possible.

Adding stops to a route via search is the most important and frequent actions. To promote the accessibility of this important function, there is now a big bright red floating action button to further elevate this critical action.

Previously many settings were buried in the general “App Settings”. This new version makes things both easier and more logical by placing settings at their point of use. For example, the Optimize settings are now settable directly on the Get Route screen. This is a more convenient location to verify and tweak settings just prior to optimization.

Similarly, Search settings are now accessible at the point of search. We pulled these settings out and placed them more conveniently at their point of use on the actual search screen.

Filtering has been significantly simplified. Added is the powerful feature to filter any stop or favorite by search text filter.

Stops and Favorites are now separately controlled for independent filtering.


Here are some of the filter specific features:

  • Full layer filtering of stops or favorites available with “Hide All” option.
  • Clear filters available with single click.
  • Displays unfiltered item counts.
